The Double R Club performance - Juliet ShalamWork

+ Really thrilled to be showing a new piece involving suspension at The Double R Club this summer.¬†It’s always interesting and risky creating work to show in a cabaret setting (admittedly Double R is a very strange kind of cabaret) and I’m enjoying how it takes me out of my comfort zone and of course, I’m enjoying performing in the gorgeous Spegeltent.

The show returns to London Wonderground on the 23rd August. You can get tickets here.

+ Is the woman who can’t cry stronger for it? In Aeon Magazine. Femininity, society and tears.

+ Without you I’m nothing – “The rock stars lover is public but powerless” I’m fascinated by the role of muse and it always feels like a very sexist set up to me (woman inspires, man creates) This article in The Believer looks specifically at the wives & girlfriends of famous male rock stars and their struggle to “stay whole in the great vortex of her lovers stardom”
